Jho Low, two others on MACC wanted list for SRC probe

KUALA LUMPUR, Aug 22 — The Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) said today it is seeking the aid of three individuals for its probe on SRC International Sdn Bhd, namely billionaire businessman Low Taek Jho and two directors from the Finance Ministry-owned firm.

The two are managing director Nik Faisal Ariff Kamil and director Datuk Suboh Md Yassin.

In a media statement signed by MACC investigations director Datuk Azam Baki, the agency urged the trio to contact investigating officers Assistant Commissioner Rosli Husain at 010-3187757 or 03-88900752, or Assistant Commissioner Norkhafizin Isa at 019-6000345 or 03-88900754.

The trio were also told to present themselves at the MACC’s special operations division office in Menara Prisma, Precinct 3, Putrajaya.

“The MACC also members of the public who may have information on the trio’s whereabouts to contact Rosli or Norkhafizin or any nearest MACC branch,” Azam said.

The statement also listed the trio’s MyKad details as well as full addresses.

According to MACC’s records, Low’s or “Jho Low” Malaysian address puts him at Tanjung Bungah Park in Penang.

Nik Faisal and Suboh, on the other hand, are listed as residing in Alam Impian in Shah Alam and Taman Tun Dr Ismail in Kuala Lumpur.

The MACC is investigating SRC International, formerly a subsidiary of 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB), over a RM4 billion bond sourced from the Retirement Fund Inc (KWAP).

The MACC had last month nabbed several individuals believe linked to SRC International to aid in its corruption probe.

The agency has also clarified that its probe is separate from the ongoing investigation by other agencies on 1MDB, a brainchild of Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak that has come under fire for racking up a reported debt of RM42 billion since its inception in 2009.
